Accessicare’s Most Frequently Asked Questions

Personal home care services provide individuals with the necessary companionship and assistance with daily activities every day if necessary, in their own home. Unlike “home health care services,” you do not need a doctor’s prescription for home care. Home care services can be provided from a few hours a day up to 24/7 care around the clock any time of day depending on the individual’s needs.

In-home care allows older adults to age in place in their own homes while professional caregivers help them with daily tasks, also known as the (ADL’s) Activities of Daily Living, they need to maintain the independence they desire. An in-home caregiver provides services that include:

  • Personalized, 1-on-1 Care
  • Medication Reminders
  • Light Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Errands
  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Meal Preparation
  • And More

Yes, depending on the provider. AccessiCare Elder Home Care management will provide training, oversight, and accountability for proper care of your loved one.
When you choose AccessiCare for home care assistance, we begin by reviewing your loved one’s care needs. We meet with involved family members and, when necessary, consult with your loved ones:

  • Doctor
  • Social Worker
  • Medical and/or Nursing Staff

Our goal is to ensure that we have a complete understanding of your loved one’s care needs and a plan to meet those needs and address the concerns of involved family members and representatives.

If you, a family member, or friend is acting as a sole caregiver to a loved one and have been feeling the stress of maintaining their care. Then it is time to inquire about our services. While an elderly loved one may struggle with admitting they need home care assistance, it’s important they get the help they need and deserve. You may notice that they are having difficulty keeping up with their personal grooming or household chores or just need a friendly face to talk to during the day.

A nursing home or retirement home may seem like logical options, but the emotional trauma a senior or elderly person endures when leaving their cherished home can be overwhelming and upsetting to everyone involved. Research has shown that seniors who age in place in their homes have far less anxiety and better health outcomes overall.

Going forward with home care can be a difficult and stressful choice that involves many factors, such as how far away you live from your loved one and what are the costs involved for care. Receiving guidance from a reputable source should be your first step. We are here to help every person involved understand and to hopefully make a transition to home care a pleasant experience for the client and provide peace of mind to the family members.

Simply call our office nearest you and one of our staff can arrange a free, no-obligation assessment with the owner or qualified care manager at a day and time of convenience for you to discuss family and/or client needs. This assessment includes:

  • A detailed review of the physical and emotional care needed
  • A possible schedule that works best for your loved one’s day to day needs
  •  Specific wishes of the family or client
  • and any other concerns.

The initial meeting is a 30-60-minute free care assessment of the client at their place of residence and provides a perfect opportunity for you or family members to ask questions.

At the end of the assessment if you want to go forward with services we will:
1. Establish and confirm a schedule of care
2. Match your loved one with a caregiver who best fits their needs and start providing consistent and compassionate care to the schedule that you desire.
